1 2012 Nurse of Excellence Award Reception May 23, 2012 Woodbury Country Club Woodburry, New York

2 A Message From The Council President May 23, 2012 Woodbury Country Club Woodburry, New York T he New York State Legislature in 1989 created a Nurse of Distinction Program. The program, coordinated at the time by Senator Tarky Lombardi, Jr., recognized individual excellence in the nursing profession. Hundreds of nurses were nominated from across the state, eight regional designees were selected by peer review, and one nurse from that group was awarded. The program was highly regarded by those within the health care industry and continued until Since then, it has been the honor of the Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council to continue this tradition on a regional level through our annual Nurse of Excellence program. The Hospital Council opted to maintain this recognition program because the registered nurse is truly the core of any hospital. Each member hospital and nursing school selects a nominee based on specific selection criteria. The nomination in and of itself is an honor. Then a Council peer review committee selects the best of the best. More important than those individuals named and honored is the celebration of the entire nursing profession that pervades this program. We are proud of the nominees and congratulate this year s top nurse. We are just as proud of all of the nurses who care for thousands of Long Islanders, seven days a week, 24 hours a day. On behalf of our board of directors, the council staff and the leadership staff at all of our hospitals, we express our sincere appreciation to all nurses and salute their commitment to compassionate quality patient care. Kevin W. Dahill President/CEO

During her program at SUNY, she also completed internships sponsored by the CDC and Morehouse College in Atlanta and with Merger Watch/ Raising Women s Voices in New York. She joined NUMC in 2010 as a staff nurse on the orthopedic/bariatric unit. Anuli was instrumental in the unit s designation as a Bariatric Center of Excellence. Because of her experience caring for patients in that unit and in her own family, Anuli became passionate about preventing diabetes and lowering its prevalence, particularly among adolescents. She discovered that the rate of Type 2 diabetes in her own community, Freeport, far exceeds the state and national averages. With a partner, she founded the Get A.H.E.A.D. (Active Healthy Education Awareness Disease Prevention) initiative targeted at adolescents and young adults aged 16 to 25. Through innovative nutrition and lifestyle education, she seeks to empower youth and instill in them the tools needed to fight this silent epidemic. Working with the mayor of Freeport, she has developed public service health segments that air on local television, among other efforts. Anuli recently took the Get A.H.E.A.D. program global, self-funding a two-week trip to Nigeria, where she worked as a volunteer in a hospital. She performed blood glucose screening, educated the patients and visitors about diabetes, participated in daily rounds, and hosted an outreach event for the community she visited. She donated home blood sugar testing kits to the attendees and supplies to the hospital. Anuli s own words best describe why she is the 2012 Nurse of Excellence Award winner: I realized that giving back was something that I never want to stop doing. Her dedication and selflessness embodies the very best of nursing, and she is a great role model for young professionals in this field. We are proud to honor her.

Cindy s enthusiasm for wound care expanded to long-term care and outpatient clinics. To ensure education was put into practice, wound staging and treatment laminated cards were created by Cindy and distributed to the nursing staff emphasizing treatment options that could be initiated by the nurse. A thorough educational program was presented to all RNs regarding evidencebased care, as well as the nurse s role in wound care treatment and prevention. She created the VA s Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Committee, the goals of which are to standardize and promote evidence-based skin care across the Northeast region s veterans system. She has published articles in the peer review journal for wound, ostomy, and continence nursing. Cindy is well-read, well-spoken and is an extremely knowledgeable individual with a passion for her specialty. She is easy to approach and staff routinely seeks her advice regarding clinical issues. WINTHROP UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL Eileen P. Magri, MSN, RN, NE-BC Director of Nursing Eileen is an RN with 33 of years experience and currently serves as the director of nursing for maternal child health at Winthrop. She is a visionary leader who has the ability to creatively analyze and solve difficult healthcare problems. She mentors and inspires high performance and dedicated teamwork among the staff she manages. Eileen is an advocate for nursing at all levels, creating an environment of collaboration and mutual respect, and encourages direct care providers to take active roles in all initiatives. She has helped develop several evidence-based practice initiatives in the maternal child health department. In an effort to promote patient and family-centered care, she has been instrumental in transforming the care delivery model in the labor and delivery and the post-partum units. Under her leadership, Winthrop is a participant of the NYS Department of Health Breastfeeding Collaborative, and was selected to be one of twelve hospitals that implement strategies to improve statewide breast feeding exclusivity rates. She is a preceptor to many Master s level nursing students and continues to offer her expertise to several professional and advisory boards. Eileen is an inspirational leader, a true professional, and a role model for all.

17 The Legend of the Teapot The teapot tradition began in the 1980s with the New York State Legislature s Nurse of Distinction Program. The first recipient of the Long Island Nurse of Distinction nomination spoke of the challenges that nurses and all of health care face, and will face, in the decades to come. In keeping with the message that day, it was recollected her comments included, most of us nurses are like teabags, we don t know our own strength until we get into hot water. The allegory resonated among those involved in the program and it eventually became a custom for a prior recipient of the Nurse of Excellence award to bestow a teapot upon the current honoree. The teapots remind our honored colleagues of their achievement and of their strengths. Like each of us, the teapots are seldom exactly alike. They celebrate the unique value that each Nurse of Excellence brings to those they serve. And, the teapot symbolizes and reminds us that hot water often brings out the best in us and in our profession.
